Welcome to the Year 5 class page for Finch class (Miss Dunk), Firecrest class (Miss Nelmes) and Firefly class (Miss Smith).
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Year Five!
We would like parents to encourage their children to read regularly and ensure that any reading done at home is recorded in your child's reading diary.
In Year 5 children are expected to know all of their times tables. Please continue to practise these regularly with your children at home.
Please see attached the list of weekly homework spellings for this term. Please note that spellings will be tested on Friday. Homework will be given out on Friday and due in the following Tuesday. If you have any problems or questions regarding the homework please speak to your class teacher before it is due in. A copy of the Year 5 spellings is also attached, children need to look at these regularly throughout the year as they are tested every term.
Miss Dunk, Miss Nelmes and Miss Smith
In Science, we have been exploring the wonder which is Space! After learning about the solar system we used a netball and fruit to recreate our own.
During Term 1, we looked into the lives of the Ancient Greeks. During our Greek Day, we looked at the Greek alphabet and created our own name boards. We also took inspiration to make our own Greek masks. Our looks were finished with our own Greek inspired wreath head bands.
Zorba is a traditional Greek dance. After watching many tutorial videos, we had a go at performing our own Zorba dances. We enjoyed it and Miss Dunk, Miss Nelmes and Miss Smith enjoyed watching us become true, authentic Greeks.
